Eighth Concert held privately in the Arts Theatre
MARCELLE MEYER (Pianoforte)
THE AMAR HlNDEMITH STRING Quartet
Licco AMAR (Violin) ; WALTER GASPAR (Violin) ; PAUL HINDEMITH (Viola) ; MAURITS FRANCK
MISS MARCELLE MEYER , and the Amar-
Hindemith String Quartet, both owe their introduction to British audiences to the B.B.C, although both have already shown themselves to be so distinguished in their own spheres as to be guests of honour wherever they go. Their short programme of an hour's chamber music this evening consists almost wholly of pieces which will be new to this country, two at least of the composers' names even being strange to us.
BOLESLAV MARTINU* is a young Czecho
Slovak composer who makes his home in Paris. On the Continent he has won more than merely passing interest with an Opera, called The Soldier and the Girl, as well as with some very original orchestral and chamber music. Like Honegger, who has been sufficiently attracted by football to write an orchestral piece on the subject, called Rugby, Martinu has given us a symphonic study which he calls Half Time. It also has football as its subject.
THERE is a special interest in hearing Hindemith play a piece specially composed for his own instrument. Without accompaniment, it displays the power and delicacy as well as the great variety of tone, of which the viola is capable. Listeners have already made some
_ acquaintance with his chamber music, but abroad he is recognized as taking an important place among composers in almost every form, including the largest. Before taking up the viola, of which he is so distinguished a player, he was the leader (principal first violin) in the fine orchestra of the Frankfurt Opera.
THE son of a former
Russian ambassador to
France, Nikolas Nabokoff lives in Paris, where his music has already aroused considerable interest. As listeners may hear in this Sonata for Pianoforte, it is original without being so startling or terrifying as some which the young men of the present day delight in giving us.

About this project
This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
